Inside the Secret Meeting Where Wall Street Tested Digital Cash

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/inside-secret-meeting-where-wall-130000570.html

Read the rest of the article in the link above.

On a recent Monday in April, more than 100 executives from some of the world’s largest financial institutions gathered for a private meeting at the Times Square office of Nasdaq Inc. They weren’t there to just talk about

blockchain, the new technology some predict will transform finance, but to build and experiment with the software.

By the end of the day, they had seen something revolutionary: U.S. dollars transformed into pure digital assets, able to be used to execute and settle a trade instantly. That’s the promise of a blockchain, where the cumbersome and error-prone system that takes days to move money across town or around the world is replaced with almost instant certainty. The event was created by

Chain, one of many startups trying to rewire the financial industry, with representatives from Nasdaq, Citigroup Inc., Visa Inc., Fidelity, Fiserv Inc., Pfizer Inc. and others in the room.

The event -- announced in a statement this Monday -- marked a key moment in the evolution of blockchain, notable both for what was achieved, as well as how many firms were involved. The technology’s potential has

captivated Wall Street executives because it offers a way to free up billions of dollars by speeding transactions that currently can take days, tying up capital. But a huge piece of that puzzle is transforming cash into a digital form. And while some firms have conducted experiments, the Chain event showed a large number of them are now looking jointly at a potential solution.

“We created a digital dollar” to show the group at Nasdaq an instant debit and credit on a blockchain, said Marc West, chief technology officer at Fiserv, a transaction and payments company with more than 13,000 clients across the financial industry. “This is the first time the money has moved.”

Buffett: Money in the mattress if banks charge for deposits

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/warren-buffett-might-consider-taking-101259131.html#

-

"If currency in a bank is worth less than currency in your hands ... that could produce something in the way of behavior," he said. "It's a different world. If you have a lot of money in euros, as we do ... you're better off putting it under your mattress than in a bank."

The easy money policies from central banks around the world is a "fascinating movie to watch," Buffett said, stressing he does not try to make money off central bank rate moves.

FBI thwarts alleged plot to bomb Miami synagogue, reports say

DEBKAfile May 2, 2016, 12:01 PM (IDT)

A man who was planning to carry out a terrorist attack against a synagogue in Miami has been arrested by the FBI in a sting operation, reports said on Monday. The suspect intended to throw a bomb into the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center on Friday evening while it was packed with worshippers on the second-to-last day of Passover, but undercover agents thwarted the attack, according to the reports. The man's identity and the details of the operation have yet to be released.

Obama Frees USS Cole Bombing Terrorist

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/262696/obama-frees-uss-cole-bombing-terrorist-daniel-greenfield

The USS Cole attack was the final step on the road to 9/11. Our government’s inaction sent a message that America could be hit hard and we would not retaliate. It told Al Qaeda that American blood was dirt cheap and that the murder of our people came with no price.

These days we are sending that same message all over again.

Obama’s release of Sabri is yet another page in that same dark history. It is a betrayal of the dead and the wounded. And of their families. It is a betrayal of the promise made by his Democratic predecessor, vowing, “After all they have given us, we must give them their meaning.”

In 2009, Obama had met with USS Cole families and promised them swift action. But a year later the families were accusing his administration of inaction and broken promises. His statement on the tenth anniversary of the attack made no mention of bringing the attackers to justice. Instead he stated that, “We will honor their legacy of selfless service by advancing the values that they stood for throughout their lives.” What were these values and how did they justify releasing one of the Cole cell terrorists?

Tightening the screws causes underground black markets to flourish. Hedge accordingly.

Carcasses of thousands of blue button jellyfish were found along Konark-Astaranga coastline in Odisha’s Puri district since last two-three days raising concerns among the environmentalists and wildlife experts.

While the blue button jellyfish are found in tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian oceans, the sight of dead hydroids along the Bay of Bengal is rare as they survive in warm waters and seldom found here.

Experts opine that the aquatic species might be dying due to drastic climate change.

“It is a rare phenomenon here as we don’t find blue button jellyfish along Odisha coast. The blue buttons might be dying due to climate change or marine water pollution,” an environmentalist expressed.

We keep hearing about die-offs like these but never get autopsy reports. The word "might" is used a lot in the article. Scientist know very little about the ocean floor. Recent earthquakes have occurred, no doubt rupturing the crust and releasing methane in gigantic amounts. I suspect that's the problem. 

The deepest hole ever drilled went down 7.5 miles only. We have NO CLUE what's under our feet. None. Gov scientists are as reliable as the people who gave us Obamacare. Same thing, imo. They say Believe us, shut up, pay your taxes.
